My wife was out of town so me and my two boys went out for a manly BBQ meal. I'd heard of Country's on the radio and thought we'd try it. There was decent smoke on the ribs and pulled pork, but simply was not a fan of their sauce. I guess their sweet tea balances it out a bit,... More

Don't scrimp and skip out on sweet tea, really ties the meal together. Order the pork platter and corn bread and sit back and enjoy... take a seat inside the bus for a different experience... (just be mindful of the kids that may come in there and honk the horn and play bus driver while you're trying to eat, it... More

While deciding where to eat,we decided to try somewhere that we can't get in California.Country's BBQ was the choice and we nailed it. We sat in the old bus to take in the nostalgia and great view of the pouring rain. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu items.Everything is made from scratch and it shows. The...

Everyone seems to love this place, so it must be me. I found the food just average. The service is friendly, and the place is always packed. Casual atmosphere. I just didn't find the barbecue that good, and the coleslaw is bitter. Average prices.

Country's BBQ has been our family's favorite BBQ Place since 1975. We have several family members & friends who moved away from Columbus who make it a point to eat there when back in town. My cousin who moved to Nashville even buys it by the pound & freezes it. He also keeps their sauce on hand. We prefer the... More

Great veggies, but the BBQ itself was obviously not freshly made that day, so a little dry. That would have gotten them an average, BUT their sauce is terrible! Watered down and no taste whatsoever. Truly, I think this was actually the worst BBQ sauce I have had and I am not really picky when it comes to BBQ sauce.... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend. Cool atmosphere, friendly staff, the food was ok. I was surprised by how big the iced tea were. The conglomeration platter( yeah I know right ) was good. The fried toast is their signature bread. It was delicious as well.
